Four Battlegrounds offers a picture of how AI is transforming warfare, global security, and the future of human freedom--and what it will take for democracies to remain at the forefront of the world order.
This analysis of artificial intelligence (AI), largely focused on national security issues rather than design, discusses the challenges for the United States ... The author argues that democracies must ensure that the future of AI is one that advances human freedom and global peace.
It is difficult to know whether to feel confident or disturbed by all this information, but Scharre effectively shows where military AI currently stands and where it is going. A solid, well-organized account of the military applications of AI and of the race to take the lead global position.
This is as much about China’s relationship with the U.S. as it is about AI, and reader interest will vary accordingly, though Scharre’s levelheaded takes distinguish this from more alarmist outings. Technophiles and technophobes alike will be challenged and enlightened.
